A new opportunity for faculty to enroll in a Certificate Program in Practice-Based Research Methods has been developed by the 8 AHRQ-funded PBRN Centers of Excellence in Practice-Based Research and Learning (https://pbrn.ahrq.gov/pbrn-profiles/p30-centers). The training program seeks to develop a new generation of PBRN investigators and is designed for new or experienced investigators who want to develop expertise in PBRNs.
Participation involves 1) Attendance at monthly 1.5 hr webinars on various PBRN topics; 2) Development and presentation of a research concept paper for a PBRN study; and 3) Development and presentation of a Specific Aims Section.
The program will culminate at a Convocation held prior to the NAPCRG National PBRN Conference in Bethesda, MD in June 2016. Participants will receive training from many of the world’s leading PBRN investigators with opportunities to meet and interact with key leaders in the PBRN field.
More information is posted here [PBRN Fellowship brochure] [Fellowship syllabus], including the learning objectives, program structure, application process, and schedule of seminars. Interested applicants should contact Rowena Dolor, MD, for more information and a letter of recommendation.
Applications should be submitted soon (no later than 9/20/15) since the program starts 9/22/15. Currently there is no limit to the number of participants and the certificate program is FREE.
